There are five Platonic solids: Tetrahedron (or triangular pyramid): 4 triangular faces Cube: 6 square faces Octahedron: 8 triangular faces Dodecahedron: 12 pentagonal faces Icosahedron: 20 triangular faces. Although not a Platonic solid, some people consider a sphere to be a regular 3d shape.

What is a solid figure with 6 edges?

A tetrahedron is a solid figure with 6 edges. There's no such thing as solid edges. A tetrahedron is a triangular pyramid, with 4 vertices, 6 edges and 4 triangular faces. In a regular tetrahedron (the first Platonic solid) all triangles are equilateral.

Meaning of each platonic solid?

There are 5 platonic solids which are the only 5 regular polyhedra (possible).Plato attributed 4 of them to the 4 elements:Fire ≡ TetrahedronEarth ≡ CubeAir ≡ OctahedronWater ≡ IcosahedronAristotle added the fifth element "Ether" saying the heavens were made of it; he did not associate the fifth platonic solid, the Dodecahedron, to it.

What are platonic solids and what do they look like?

The five Platonic solids are regular polyhedra. They are convex shapes which are created from regular polygonal faces, such that the number of faces meeting at each face is the same.The five are:tetrahedron - 4 triangular faces;hexahedron (or cube - 6 square faces;octahedron - 8 triangular faces,dodecahedron - 12 pentagonal facesicosahedron - 20 triangular faces.To see their images, search Google for Platonic Solids.
